Mead on Israel

Walter Russell Mead has another great take, this time on the Israeli/Palestinian issue, that makes an astute, not-raised-enough point about the conflict: that even if there’s a peace deal, it’s going to leave a LOT of people unhappy, on both sides and all over the world, to the point where even a peace isn’t likely to be a lasting one.
I agree with that, and my pessimism is part of the reason why I almost never mention Israel or the Middle East here anymore.
It’s a take that’s pretty critical of Obama, too. So naturally, just about every one of the comments chides Mead for being too nice to Obama.
